In memoriam: Stu Sutcliffe

45 years ago Stu Sutcliffe died. He was the first bass player with the Beatles. He sucked as a musician, but he was a talented painter.

He is featured playing bass with the Beatles on three songs that the band recorded in 1960: "Hallelujah, I Love Her So", "You'll Be Mine", and "Cayenne" on the Anthology 1 album.

Sutcliffe died from a brain haemorrhage; after collapsing in the middle of an art class, he was taken to a hospital, but died in the ambulance.
